Bike to Bhran cottage, atv track to summit.iangalbraith02/07/2019
with Jonathanjwbellarby18/04/2019
Walked up from Drumguish, up Glen Tromie to Bhran Cottage, then up via Allt an Tulaich making for an obvious ATV track, then the W ridge by a cairn. A good walk- I'd never been up this lovely (except the lodge) glen, nor enjoyed the fascinating views to the Minigaig and Gaick, while climbing Munros. Very dry condtions. Bright with a few showers around but cloud base 3000 ft +.pwheeler17/07/2018
Climbed alone. Parked car at Drumguish, walked up road through Glen Tromie, then overgrown path from Bhran Cottage. Dreich, no view from summit.187lenny11/07/2018

Parked in Drumguish by the post box. Easy walk in along Glen Tromie road. Icy approaching summit. Back along ridge over Meallach Bheag, Clach mheall and Croidh-ta. Solo.Dangerous Dave20/03/2018
A glorious sunny day with a cool breeze. By bike to just past Bhran Cottage. Up Meallach Mhor starting up the Allt an Tulaich on a short ATV track, then easy going to the top. Over Meall an Dubh-cadha on a faint path, and then an ATV track to the bealach. Up rough stuff to Sgor Dearg, and easy short heather over Carn Dearg (there's an ATV track too). Ghastly track to Carn Dearg Mor, but nothing can spoil the view from the top. Down the track, then to the Allt Bhran. The path shown on the map is an OS fantasy, but it's a lovely walk down all the same. More pleasant to cross the river to the landrover track for the last part.Gill05/05/2017
With Will.Grinner17/10/2015
Track too icy treacherous for a bike. So long walk over the Sims to the main top in snowshoes. And then even longer walk back on estate road finishing in the dark.Martin R22/01/2015

19th Solo. Continuation of overnight Bivi trip, overnight upper River Feshie. Followed the highest tops in general WNW direction to Leathad an Taobhain. Picked up good track heading N, left track to summit Carn Dearg Mor via SW ridge, then headed W taking direct line to Meallach Mhor. Walk out N through Glen Tromie to Kingussie. Cool, dry day, light winds, broken cloud above summits.RGibbs28/09/2014
First hill of 2014. Seven mile drive in from the north to park SW of Meallach Mhor. Snow squall blew in before getting to summit and stayed gently falling snow as I tramped out east to SIM Meall an Dubh-chadha causing abandonment of plans to go north to other tops but clear and sunny again as I descended SW back to valleyvegibagger25/01/2014
